Hey isn’t that … actor Reid Scott, known best as his “Veep” alter ego Dan Egan, having a working dinner at Urbana in Dupont Circle on Wednesday night? Scott, whose character Dan is the quintessential political ladder climber, is in town to support Oceana, an international conservation group that opposes the Obama administration’s proposed use of seismic air guns in offshore drilling. Who’d have thunk it?

On Thursday morning, the actor, described as a ocean activist in a news release, met with Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.) and Rep. John Carney (D-Del.), according to his official Twitter account.
